'letting go with watercolors
When you start painting 'loose, you realize that details don't matter anymore, that it's all about creating 'shapes and letting the paint flow on the paper.
In this class, I will be teaching you how to apply colors 'wet on wet; what is the best ratio between water and paint; how to wet the paper so you have the most control, but at the same time - you are still painting 'loose; what areas to leave 'paper dry while wetting the paper; and how to lift colors.
I used to didn't understand 'lifting, and how essential 'lifting is to watercolors. So today, I can't wait to share all the tips with you.
'Lifting can literally change the entire style of your painting.
Hi, I’m your watercolor teacher!
After starting two online schools (first on Patreon and later on Teachable), I wanted to create a membership-based school with more detailed classes. Something a lot more affordable and with a broader choice of subjects.
Mastering 'wet on wet
I used to think that 'wet on wet was harder than 'wet on dry. Was I wrong! While at first, it may seem a bit intimidating to try to control paint over the wet surface of the paper, once we learn that it's all about using the correct ratio between water and paint, and how to wet the paper - everything starts to make sense, and the process becomes much smoother.
Keeping it 'loose
Loose doesn't mean any details. My idea is to keep the background loose, paint the bird mostly loose, but not entirely, then focus on the eyes and a beak the most, to add some details, and make those elements most realistic. The painting is still loose, it feels light and airy, and so 'watercolor-like, without overworking it and adding any details towards the wings, for example.
The game of 'lifting colors
It took me a couple of years to learn how to lift correctly. It's about that right timing. It is not a secret, it's a matter of watching your paper drying, and finding that perfect timing. Lifting can change the entire style of your painting. Lifting can help to create an illusion of feathers, or fur when let's say you are painting a cat. Lifting is essential to watercolor painting.
